The hottest property to hit the Byron Shire market this year is here.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity – rarely does something like this come on to the market.
The stunning property boasts 270 degree panoramic views, across the hinterland, and out to sea. Extremely private, you will feel like you are a million miles from anywhere, but are just 8 minutes from Mullumbimby, 23 minutes from Byron Bay and beaches, and only about 40-45 minutes from both Gold Coast and Ballina airports.
The property is 130 acres (approx.) in size, and is super easy to maintain, as it mostly consists of your own private tropical forest, with the north east facing homestead sitting on 2-3 acres of the cleared mountaintop crest.
The Castle in the Sky was built as a pavilion-style home with a spa house and 3 bedrooms, each with a full-ensuite bathroom. It has been operating as a luxury accommodation for the last 10 years.
On such a large acreage, with no neighbours, this property guarantees its owners complete privacy, and a lifestyle that would suit anyone who is searching for peace and quiet.
Built from Oregon timber and volcanic bluestone, the property is the perfect weekender, holiday rental, or forever home, and is within easy distance of Ballina/Byron and Gold Coast Airports.
There is enough space in front of the house to land a helicopter and arrive in style. (Please refer to the property video that is attached to this listing for reference)
The main Pavilion has a relaxed open-plan dining, living and kitchen area, with a huge open fire as its centrepiece. But the real showpiece is the wide-range view, showcased by the floor-to-ceiling glass windows that hug the living space area.
The master bedroom has an ensuite, and there is also a powder room.
The beautiful bluestone walls, together with the Oregon timber and black slate floors, give you the feeling of being inside a grand castle.
Outside is a 12 metre pool and 2-3 acres of landscaped surrounds. Relax on the swing seat, or the observation platform, and take in the spectacular views, capturing the beauty of the Byron Hinterland and breathtaking coastline.
The views offered from this home are, by far, the best views you will ever get from anywhere in the shire.
The current owner has created some concept plans to further develop this property into a world-class resort style home (STCA) and, for your reference, we have included the plans in the photo gallery that complements this listing.
